GLF Schools was founded in 2012 in order to enable the federation of Glyn School (an academy in 2011) and Danetree Junior School. Together, we began our journey to become a MAT of more than 1000 talented staff working with over 10,000 children in 40 schools across 5 regions in southern England.

Merstham Park School (MPS) aims to be a great secondary school at the heart of our community in Merstham. It has been founded by GLF Schools, which is a Multi-Academy Trust established in 2012. GLF Schools believe that every child in its schools can achieve the highest academic standards whilst enjoying a vibrant, challenging and rich curriculum. Whilst operating as a part of a family, each school exists in its own right maintaining its own unique characteristics and individual identity. Each of our 40 schools serves to meet the needs of its own local community yet all are united in their core purpose of providing an outstanding educational experience. When we say outstanding, we mean this in the traditional definition of the word synonymous with excellence.

MPS will be a smaller than average, mainstream, non-selective secondary school located in Merstham. The school opened in September 2018 offering 120 places at Year 7, creating a viable, local choice for the parents and children of the community.

Merstham is a good example of a typical Surrey town containing a mix of very affluent and reasonably affluent wards, together with areas of high deprivation. The location for Merstham Park, in the heart of Merstham will make it the natural secondary school for at least three neighbouring wards: Redhill, Reigate and Nutfield.

The three closest local primary schools are Furzefield Primary School, Merstham Primary School and Lime Tree Primary School. Merstham and Lime Tree Primary Schools are both GLF Schools.
